Notes on the Bible, by Albert Barnes, [1834], at

2 Chronicles Chapter 18

2 Chronicles 18:1

ch2 18:1

The present chapter runs parallel with Kings, which it closely follows, only adding a few touches.

2 Chronicles 18:2

ch2 18:2

After certain years - In Jehoshaphat's 17th year Kg1 22:51, not less than 8 years after the marriage (marginal reference note).

2 Chronicles 18:31

ch2 18:31

And the Lord helped him ... - There is nothing correspondent to this passage in Kings. It is a pious reflection on the part of the author, who traces all deliverance to its real divine source.
